As part of the CSO’s 2015.2016 season, three exciting international composers were commissioned to compose new Concertos for Orchestra, showcasing the virtuosity, style, and sound of the CSO. The recording represents the culmination of this exciting project, and once again affirms the CSO’s core value of being a place of experimentation.
Zhou Tian’s new Concerto for Orchestra is a grandiose symphony in which every instrument of the large symphony orchestra is treated soloistically.
The commissioned work of Zhou Tian’s Concerto for Orchestra, was made possible by a generous gift from Ann and Harry Santen. The recording of Zhou Tian’s Concerto for Orchestra was made possible by a generous gift from Mace Justice.
